Android user can use Google Assistant to send messages whereas iPhone user can use Shiri. These digital assistants can also read out your WhatsApp message for you.
3. Share Your Location
As we use location sharing on Messanger, Facebook has provided this feature in Whatsapp too. Once you share your live location with someone, they would be able to track wherever you go for the time period you select. You can select tree time frames that are – 15 minutes, 1 hour and 8 hours.
To share your live location with your friends, just open WhatsApp; tap on the ‘Attachment’ icon on the typing spacebar and select ‘Location’. Once you do this, you will get two options – ‘Share Live Location’ and ‘Share Your Current Location’. Tap on the farmer option and select the time frame.
4. ‘Unsend’ messages
It is the fact that once in a while we send a wrong message to the wrong person by mistake. Now, you don’t have to be panic. There is still a way to delete it. Select the message then press the ‘Delete’ icon on the top of the page.
Once you press the delete icon, you will see three options – ‘Delete for me’, ‘Cancel’, and ‘Delete for Everyone’. Now select the last one ‘Delete for Everyone’ so that the receiver can’t read the message that you mistakenly send them. However, you only get seven minutes to delete the message after you have sent it.
5. Create GIFs
We all know that WhatsApp support GIFs file for a while even we also share GIFs file. But did you know you can also create GIFs within Whatsapp and sent it to your friends? You can create GIFs to those files which are shaved in your smartphone.

As soon as you do this, it’ll open up in the video editing section of WhatsApp. Here, you have to adjust the length of the video to 6 seconds or less, as longer GIFS are not supported by WhatsApp.
Once the video length is less than 6 seconds, the option of converting it to a GIF will appear as a slider on the top right. Now all you need to do is take the slider towards GIF, and you’re set.
6. Editing Images

7. Format Text
one of the best features of WhatsApp that one should know. Just think when you are writing a long message in a group about any information and you are using the heading in bold and somewhere italic also then it looks pretty cool.
WhatsApp has a different text format feature so that you can write in a different style. You can bold text on WhatsApp by starting it and following it with an asterisk ‘*’. Similarly, for italics, make sure the text is preceded and followed by an underscore sign ‘_’. You can also make your text appear struck off with Strikethrough. For that precede and follow it with tilde ‘~’.
8. Switch off media auto-download
If you have joined with different many groups then you must be receiving lots of pictures and videos daily. Almost half of them are actually not needed. Some of us need every video whereas some people need every picture. According to your need, you can manage what gets downloaded automatically and what doesn’t.
Go to Settings > Select Data usage and choose the most appropriate options.
